The Cards are making cuts ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to reduce NFL squad sizes down to 53, so there are a few decisions to be made. One of those involved keeping Kyler Murray on the PUP list. This means the QB will be out for at least the first four games of the season.
Colt McCoy was expected to go into the season as the starter. However, the Cardinals traded for Dobbs and, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, have released McCoy. This leaves Dobbs as the QB most likely to start.
McCoy’s release did seem like it was going to happen as he did not give a good account of himself in preseason following an elbow surgery earlier this year.
His age, 36, and his durability are understood to have been the subject of concern for the past few years.
It appears the Cardinals no longer harbor qualms over starting fresh given that they’ve cut ties with veterans like McCoy and linebacker Isaiah Simmons this month.
